Snow Emergencies

If your child sinks in the snow, a snow emergency is likely.When two or more inches of snow have accumulated, snow and ice control operations move from sanding and salting to plowing the snow to the sides of the street. In most cases, plowing operations begin between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m.; the exact time depends on the predicted start of the snow storm, intensity of snowfall, and the expected end to the snowfall.

There is a schedule for snow plowing Minnetonka streets.

The following city ordinances apply to parking on Minnetonka roads at all times:

  • No vehicle shall be parked on a public street between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. and no vehicle shall, in any case, be parked on a public street in any one place for a continuous period longer than six hours.
  • No person shall park a motor vehicle or trailer, or allow a motor vehicle or trailer under his control, to remain on a street, road or highway in a manner that interferes with removal of snow, sleet, slush or ice from the street, road or highway. In addition to any other penalties imposed for violation of this section, the Minnetonka Police Department may order the motor vehicle or trailer towed from the right-of-way at the owner’s expense.

If you have any questions regarding parking, please call 952.939.8500.
